Paige Donovan is an ambitious college graduate who aspires to reach the top of the corporate ladder. She’s climbing fast when given the promotion of a lifetime at a prestigious fashion magazine in New York City. Her bright future comes to an unexpected halt after news of her father’s death. She inherits his old cabin in the Colorado Rockies, and just when she thinks her luck couldn’t get any worse, she has a car accident in the mountains and awakens in the small, remote community of Black River.
Soon, she’s engulfed in the mystical world of Varulv---wolves descended from 13th century Scandinavia and blessed by Norse gods with the ability to appear human. Paige is desperate to return home, but never expects to fall for her rescuer, Riley Gray, a charming young werewolf from England who offers her an alternate future with his pack.
Now, she must choose between the career she’s always wanted and the love she’s always dreamed
This book follows Paige Donovan a very career oriented girl as she learns to follow her heart or her dreams. She’s worked very hard to get where she is, but after her father dies she is given another path to follow, as she is reunited with the white wolf/boy from her youth. The book opens with her memories of her one and only time at the cabin in the woods that her father purchased. Her memories are mostly happy because of the white wolf. She also remembers her parents fighting almost the whole time there were there. Her trip was cut short because Riley as we come time find out his name is, kept bringing her treats (ie dead animals) because he liked her.
Growing up she was closer to her father, but they never went back to the cabin. As a matter of fact she thought he sold it. It’s not until he dies and gives it to her that she knows that he kept it, and kept it nice. On her return visit she meets Riley again. Only she doesn’t know who he is. Not until he reveals himself. He and the whole town are a pack of werewolves. The revelation sends Paige spinning. But soon she finds she cannot deny her attraction to Riley.
This a great PNR/Erotic romance book. The writing is solid, it goes from exciting and page turning to hot at the drop of the hat. It’s an extremely fast read. I found myself flying through the pages on my kindle.
The action scenes were great, so where the scenes with no clothes. I didn’t connect with Paige until a little bit further in the book but once I did it became much more enjoyable. I thought Riley was a great character. He has a lot of charisma, and his air of mystery is a double plus. His sister is equally as charismatic.
The Howling Heart was a good read, with strong writing, good likeable characters. I highly recommend it for PNR fans.
